Resetting your Zen Cart Admin Password in PHPMyAdmin
If you forget your administrator login credentials for Zen Cart, you will need to reset it. The password reset will be done through PHPMyAdmin in cPanel. We cannot reset your password, since Zen Cart is third party software.
- Log into cPanel and go to PHPMyAdmin
- Click on the Zen Cart Database on the left side menu pane
- Click on the SQL tab
- Run the following Query
DELETE FROM admin WHERE admin_name = 'Admin'; INSERT INTO admin (admin_name, admin_email, admin_pass, admin_level) VALUES ('Admin', 'admin@localhost', '351683ea4e19efe34874b501fdbf9792:9b', 1);
Now, you should be able to log into your Zen Cart administrator dashboard using the following credentials:
You'll want to reset your password to something more secure once you regain access to your dashboard.

I found an extremely easy solution to this problem. I did everything shown here and it did not work. I have been frustrated testing all the google search responses all to failure. At my frustration point I began to think STUPID. What does not make sense and I found the solution. When signing into ZenCart and requesting a RESET PASSWORD email which does not show up. I decided to look in the SPAM email folder and there were all the emails with the reset codes. FIXED IT!
